Barack Obama made one thing perfectly clear.
The former President only cares about defeating Donald Trump in 2020.
And that became obvious when Barack Obama stabbed a top ally in the back for this stunning reason.
Former Attorney General Eric Holder was Barack Obama’s most loyal cabinet official.
For all the talk in the fake news of current Attorney General William Barr supposedly acting like Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Eric Holder took that to the extreme by declaring he was Obama’s “wingman.”
After Obama left office the two teamed up on a “nonpartisan” redistricting campaign to push states to adopt measures to draw legislative and congressional district maps that rig elections for the Democrat Party.
But once the political calendar started to turn towards the 2020 Presidential Election, Eric Holder made it known he had interest in the race.
There was just one problem – Barack Obama cooled to the idea.
In an article in the fake news swamp publication POLITICO, Ryan Lizza – who left the New Yorker after “Me Too” allegations of sexual misconduct – authored a behind the scenes look at Barack Obama’s thoughts on the 2020 field.
They were not flattering.
Lizza detailed how candidates met with Obama behind closed doors to offer either encouragement or a candid assessment of their chances.
But Obama did not encourage Holder to run.
And that stung the former Attorney General.
Lizza reported that:
Holder was particularly wounded that his close friend wasn’t more encouraging of his own ambitions. ”He’s still pretty sensitive about it,” said someone close to Holder. “He was really frustrated about having arrived at the decision not to run. Holder couldn’t get in because Biden and Holder have the same set of people. Once Biden was getting in then Eric couldn’t get in. So that frustrated Holder. It blocked him. And Biden has turned out the way they all feared, and that’s really frustrating to Eric.”
Barack Obama may be friends with Eric Holder.
But this is business.
If Donald Trump wins a second term, Barack Obama’s entire policy legacy stands to be erased.
In addition, a Trump re-election victory means the country fundamentally shifted and the country fundamentally rejected the anti-American and race-baiting politics of the Obama era.
That is something Obama cannot stand for.
Eric Holder stands little chance of winning the Democrat primary.
But Holder’s past racist attacks on America such as calling the United States a “nation of cowards” on dealing with race threaten to yank the field so far to the left that the eventual nominee could never recover to safer political ground in the General Election.
These behind the scenes meetings made it clear Obama had no time to suffer fools in the 2020 election.
Obama’s mind is singularly focused on one goal – and that is defeating Donald Trump.
And the former President is willing to sacrifice almost anything to see that become a reality.
